This cozy little restaurant in Southwest Harbor, Maine serves up a wonderful signature Mussels in cream appetizer with crusty bread which was for the two of us a delightful meal. The mussels were incredibly fresh and plump, and the preparation was stellar! Our server was appropriately attentive and gracious and the price was right. These mussels and a glass of crisp wine was excellent.

I pick up the mussels directly from the harvesters, and bring them into the restaurant right out of the water. They are raised on ropes in Blue Hill Bay which has some of the cleanest water around, not to mention coldest. The bay is on the western side of our island so the mussels aren't to far from the water to your plate. Our kitchen staff came up with the recipe a few years ago and it has turned out to be a huge seller. We also buy oysters from the same company which are also of very high quality. Mussels remain at their best for only a few days and after that they start to open their shells and drain any seawater in them. Mussels then start to become tough and dry out making for a poor quality item. We sell so many that they don't have time to get old. Thank you for your review.
